  1. You're looking cold there, Bunny,
    Shivering in the snow,
    Come and have a Bear hug
    Beneath the mistletoe.

  2. "Give us a kiss!" Brown Bear chanced,
    Clutching fresh mistletoe.
    Rabbit's heart raced, this was it!
    Her cheeks flushed all aglow.

  3. "You'll need a bigger umbrella than that to stop the snow ruining your hair, Bear," said Rabbit #w8padvent @melgreen73

  5. “I just don’t believe it- that bear’s gone and nicked,
    The green tasty titbit I'd carefully picked!”

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
